On Sunday 17 June 2018 from 14:00 to 18:00, Peter Vink and Mark Bogert will again provide a clinic for Bo-EL Guitars and TV Cabinets. These well-known guitarists from Knight Area, and Bo-EL fanatics, will explain about our guitars and bass guitars, their own sound and the special playing style. TV Cabinets will tell everything about their handmade cabinets. Off course there will also be made some music. It is an interactive clinic, so there is plenty of room for questions, and the guitars and cabinets can be tried. This clinic takes place in Get Rhythm Muzikantencentrum, Nikkelstraat 41, Ridderkerk. No registration in advance needed, as expected there will be a little entrance fee (about two euros) at the door.
